Kohima, July 21: NSCN (IM) supremo Thiungaleng Muivah has landed in New Delhi for reportedly regular health check-up.
Sources said NSCN general secretary has reached the national capital for his regular health check-up. The 86 years old Muivah has been undergoing regular health examination to keep his aging health fit, as he is also the chief negotiator between the Union Government and the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (Isak-Muivah).
The talks, scheduled with the Centre’s interlocutor and Governor, RN Ravi could not be held on June 16 due to certain reason. The next round of talks is expected to be held soon after Muivah’s return from New Delhi.
But according to sources, the NSCN leader is also expected to meet central leaders in an effort to give impetus to the almost stalemate Naga peace process, after the difference in interpretation of 3rd August, 2015, Framework Agreement. By all indications the talks are not on right track, and the Union Government will try to bring back the peace process on the right track.
Furthermore the Centre said Naga peace talk is concluded, but the two entities have not finalized on separate flag and the Constitution; the key demand of the NSCN.
The peace process has not been smooth after Ravi was appointed as Governor of Nagaland. The NSCN had demanded for replacement of interlocutor. Interestingly since the inception of Naga insurgency, Governors have been playing pivotal role.
Apart from interlocutor, Ravi, the Central Government has a Cabinet sub-committee on Naga talks, headed by the Prime Minister. Earlier during the Congress Government at the Centre, Minister of State, Oscar Fernandez headed the group of ministers on Naga peace process, and other members were Prithviraj Chauhan and S. Raghupati. (Page News Service)
